Superoxide dismutases (SOD) are essential enzymes that eliminate superoxide radical (O2-) and thus protect cells from damage induced by free radicals. The active O2- production and low SOD activity in cancer cells may render the malignant cells highly dependent on SOD for survival and sensitive to inhibition of SOD. Here we report that certain oestrogen(More)
This paper describes a model for computer programming outreach workshops aimed at second-level students (ages 15-16). Participants engage in a series of programming activities based on the Scratch visual programming language, and a very strong group-based pedagogy is followed. Participants are not required to have any prior programming experience. An(More)
The population of the Ounein Valley in the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco is at high risk of iodine deficiency. We investigated local children's iodine deficiency and goiterpattems as well as food consumption habits through a household survey. Median urinary iodine content and goiter analysis both reflect moderate iodine deficiency. Total fish consumption(More)

This research paper presents a study aimed at exploring and analysing student teachers’ professional development through exposure to international practicum in South Africa and how(More)
The population of the Ounein Valley in the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco is at high risk of iodine deficiency. We investigate local children’s iodine deficiency and goiter patterns and their food consumption habits through regression analysis using data from a household survey. Median urinary iodine content and goiter analysis both reflect moderate iodine(More)
The new anticancer agent poly(L-glutamic acid)-paclitaxel (PG-TXL) is a conjugate of paclitaxel and the water-soluble polyglutamate carrier. The observation that PG-TXL appears to possess antitumor activity superior to free paclitaxel in preclinical studies suggests that PG-TXL might possess favorable pharmacokinetic properties and/or have a mechanism of(More)
